In 2021, choosing the right home for you and your family has taken on enhanced importance. More and more of us are seeking homes that are increasingly scarce on the market. People want living space, outdoor areas, creature comforts, home offices, and large kitchens.
In much of Australia, finding a new home with all of these features for a reasonable price is like looking for a needle in a haystack. In addition, the average sale price for a new house in Australia has hit an all-time record-high of $842,940, making it harder to get value for money on the open market.
That is why you should consider opting to build your home yourself. Increasing numbers of Australians are choosing to own a home on their own terms by hiring a premium housebuilder to create their dream house from scratch. If you are considering the home construction option, read on to find out why you should build your home in 2021.Â
1. A Home That Offers Everything You Want
The most important benefit of building your own home is that you do not have to compromise. Buying a home on Australia’s intensely competitive housing market often involves a lot of trade-offs. You might not be able to get a house that is big enough for your family in the area you want to live in.
You might not be able to find a home with enough outdoor space in your existing budget. You might find that you have to give up on your dreams of a home office and gym in order to afford a home in the style that you want. However, when you hire a local home builder to create a new home from scratch, you do not need to make any of those painful trade-offs.
Once you have a plot of land, there are no limits to what you can do. If you want to throw in a gourmet kitchen and a backyard terrace for those sunny Sunday morning breakfasts, you can go for it. If you want to build a home with a dedicated home office space, without having to worry about whether you can convert the laundry room, then you can do so without any trouble.
If you want to build a home that is bigger than what you currently need in order to accommodate your growing family, then there are no limits to what you can do with a home builder. When you can build a house that is truly yours, you have a home for life.
2. Durability and Sustainability
One of the benefits of building a new house instead of buying an older home is that you can access all of the benefits of owning a brand new home. The older your home is, the more likely you are to spend time, money, and emotions on stressful renovations. With a brand new home, you can rest easy knowing that you are moving into a house that is designed according to all of the latest building codes and is most definitely built to last.
By choosing a new home with Fowler Homes, you are choosing a house builder that is guaranteed to create a home that is totally future-proof. This will save you thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars over the years that you live there. The first few years in your new custom-built home will likely require zero renovations, meaning that you and your family can enjoy a totally stress-free living experience.
3. Invest In Your Future
While your home is first and foremost a place to live, it is also the most significant investment you will ever make. You want a home that will appreciate in value and help you secure a future for yourself and your family. For this, building your own custom home is often the best choice.
As a rule, newer homes fetch a better asking price on the market. This means that your home is likely to retain its value for longer. In addition, owning a home that is designed for the future and incorporates all of the latest building codes will help prop up its value if you decide to sell further down the road.
You can also choose to build your home with resale value in mind by choosing price-boosting features such as a large kitchen and a spacious yard. By choosing to build your own home from scratch, you are making a smarter investment in your future financial security.
4. Total Cost Efficiency
It bears emphasizing just how cost-effective building your own home is. Once you have purchased a plot of land for a fraction of the cost of buying an existing home outright, all you need to do is to hire a home builder. No matter the size, extravagance, and luxury of your custom-built home, building it will always cost substantially less than if you were to buy the same home outright on the open market.
If you want to build your home in a highly desirable area, doing so will cost much less than if you were to buy an existing home in that area. Building your home also saves you all of the costly steps of the traditional home-buying process. No longer will you need to set aside additional tens of thousands of dollars for the inevitable bidding war that will drive up the price of the home you want.
No longer will you need to set aside 5% of the list price to pay your realtor, or spend thousands of dollars on a real estate lawyer. If you care about the bottom line, build your home.
5. Stay On Top of Trends and Technology
Finally, it is worth keeping in mind that building your own home allows you to stay on top of the latest trends and technology. Doing so covers a number of key considerations when choosing a home. You can make sure that your home incorporates all of the cutting-edge energy efficiency design, saving you thousands of dollars in energy bills and reducing your carbon footprint dramatically.
You can build a home that is designed specifically to conserve water, an increasingly valuable asset if you live in Australia. You can build a home designed to provide all of the comforts of modern living from the first day that you move in.
